Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park
Established in 1929, this predominately old growth coastal redwoods park is bisected by the last major free flowing river in California, the Smith River. Almost all of the park land is water shed for the Smith River and Mill Creek, a major tributary.
The park has about 20 miles of hiking and nature trails, river access, a visitor center with exhibits and a nature store. Drive Howland Hill Road (gravel-not recommended for trailers) and stroll in Stout Grove.
Nine miles east of Crescent City on Highway 199.
